Animography is a new a kind of type foundry that designs animated fonts mainly for motion graphics (they are basically Adobe After Effects files with each glyph in a separate composition).
They’re also a whole lot more flexible than existing Livefonts. While Apple’s solution is a collection of tweakable pre-rendered QuickTime files, Animography typfaces are deeply customizable After Effects files, meaning an editor can adjust line thickness, duration, easing, wiggle, color–and do so within one of the richest pieces of post-production software in the industry.
This kind of mix between between typography and animation is definitely very interesting and worth exploring even more. Animography’s fonts look great and they do have a very distinct character all by themselves although that could be a double edged knife when it comes to building a visual identity, despite their flexibility.
Other that that I would love to see a similar attempt using web technologies instead of Adobe’s After Effects.
